Remembering Robert

An old friend passed away this weekend.  His name was Robert Grant and he was a great friend, part of a circle of friends at Truro many years ago.  Over the past few days his friends have been sharing stories and tears over the miles that now separate us.  He was a unique person - there are so many stories - and a few years ago he decided that he really wanted to serve people and his Lord in Israel.  So he went there - and served for many years.  And tomorrow our friend will be buried in Jerusalem. 

By faith he made his home in the promised land like a stranger in a foreign country; he lived in tents, as did Isaac and Jacob, who were heirs with him of the same promise. For he was looking forward to the city with foundations, whose architect and builder is God. - Hebrews 11:9-10
